Lets kill two birds with one stone

From News of the Weird

International restrictions on tuna fishing have created a shortage in Japan's sushi restaurants so dire that chefs are considering substitutes such as sushi prepared with raw horse or deer meat. While that would outrage many Japanese diners, some restaurateurs believe the plan feasible, according to a June New York Times dispatch from Tokyo. Said one: "We tasted it, and horse sushi was pretty good. It was soft, easy to bite off, had no smell." [New York Times, 6-25-07]

(no smell could be good or bad, they might want to enhance it with some artificial aroma)

Tired of those pesky, insidious squirrels---how about 'squirrel sushi?' We might not even have to search for a market.

Minnesota State Fair---Squirrel Sushi on a stick. (people will eat anything at the state fair if it's on a stick) 10 days of our time and effort, we're laughing all the way to the bank. Just put out the word for people to bring the squirrels they trap around their homes to us, we'll do the rest.

A second option would be 'roadkill raccoon on a stick.' We could feed every visitor to the fair just on what I could round up on my route to work.

Doesn't it have to be deep fried to be served at the State Fair? That kinda rules out "sushi."
